Grizzlymon is a Beast Digimon. Although its plainly massive body, fangs and claws which conceal lethal potential, and appearance are ferocious, it possesses the spirit of an honorable martial artist. It can nimbly dodge the opponent's attacks, turning them aside, as with its exceptional grappling sense, it doesn't need to rely on its own attacks. Though Grizzlymon never starts fights, once someone makes it angry, it will stand up on its back legs and knock them down with its heavyweight forelegs, "Bear Claws" (熊爪 Kuma Tsume?). With just this blow, most Digimon suffer a mortal wound as strong as the power they possess. These "Bear Claws" appear to have been imitated in WaruMonzaemon's "Bear Claw" equipment.[7]


  • Maul Attack[8] (当身返し Atemigaeshi?, lit. "Bodystrike Reversal"): Knocks down the opponent by utilizing their attack power, and converts it into striking them in their vitals.
  • Crescent Dawn
  • Heavy Attack: Attacks with a blow with the power of a beast.
  • Black Bear Claws


Grizzlymon is a quadrupedal bear Digimon covered in purple fur. It has red eyes, a black nose, and grey fur on part of its head. It has a white crescent moon on its forehead. It wears red armor on the shoulders of its forelegs, the paws of which are covered with red, spiked gauntlets that have sharp claws: the "Kuma Tsume". Its hind legs are not as massively developed as its forelegs, but they are still large.
